Call summary and aims
There is a critical need to invest in novel defence technologies that can deliver precise effects on conventional and unconventional threats. Such technologies are designed to engage in precise, graduated and environmental-responsible ways. Activities clearly aim to develop a strategic orientation to bring such innovative technologies closer to end-user uptake in the medium term. The Preparatory Action on Defence Research thereby provides the scope for research and technological development actions based on assessments of the current and future research and development needs. Several of these technologies are considered to be critical for EU Member States in terms of strategic autonomy and/or security of supply. The proposed programmatic approach should ensure that such important limitations can be lifted.
